No kid­ding, it’s a sell­out

Ellenbrook Advocate - - NEWS -

YOGA with goats classes in Mt He­lena sold out within hours of be­ing posted on so­cial pages.

Mark Hay­man, who runs Pos­sum Val­ley An­i­mal Sanc­tu­ary with part­ner Chris Raf­ferty, said the pop­u­lar­ity of the fundrais­ing event ex­ceeded all ex­pec­ta­tions.

“The first three ses­sions sold out within hours of post­ing,” he said.

“We posted more dates in Novem­ber and they also sold out.

“We have two an­i­mal-lov­ing yoga in­struc­tors do­nat­ing their ser­vices to the events, Frieda Orr and Dim­ity Weihr.”

The pair hope to of­fer more classes in sum­mer.

“Most of our goats and lambs are hand-raised, or at least well han­dled, gen­tle and af­fec­tion­ate,” he said.

“If any do get a bit too ex­u­ber­ant, sanc­tu­ary vol­un­teers will be avail­able to di­vert their at­ten­tions and take them to the naughty cor­ner for a time­out.”

Mr Hay­man said goat yoga and med­i­ta­tion com­bined phys­i­cal and men­tal health ben­e­fits with the play­ful­ness of goats.

Yoga with goats has proved a sur­prise hit.
